. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it
of the romney campaign there? fort worth? caller: well, i see that the republicans handled their candidate, mitt romney, and i see that they're orkstrite, as far as all of his surrogates that have negative comments and responses by the republican party. host: we're going to leave it there. molly ball of "the atlantic," go ahead. guest: i don't think we should reach too much into the different form these campaigns have taken. part of the reason the republican national committee is handling the ground game for romney is that the republican primary took quite a while to decide. so they were able to build this organization back in march before romney was the nominee and try to catch up with the obama campaign that's been building this organization for six years. i do think the republicans are at a disadvantage because they've had less time, but if they had waited until romney sewed up the nomination around late april, or even until the convention when he officially received the nomination, they would have been at a much more severe disadvantage. these organizations take some time to build. host: nex
the first debate, the republican party had enthusiastic supporters there. romney did it do well compared to obama. there was disappointment with president obama within the democratic ranks after that first debate he has started to regain the next two performances, but that first debate had a tremendous impact. >> wherever he goes, you hear him say that you have to vote. >> he counts on groups that have low turnout rates paid blacks, hispanics, young people, people he needs and that catapulted him to the top in 2008. there was a big turnout in 2008. those people lacked passion and he needs to find them and get them out. >> the pew research center and a harvard year to see poll indicates, if they are accurate, that if you were young people are going to -- fewer young people are going to turn out for obama. >> i don't think you need a survey to tell you that. you have your own eyes and your experience. >> one thing obama has is this data mining thing, this state of the art mining of information to find these people and get them out. we are about to test how could that is. >> or abortion is
with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tightens polls i'm joined by christia freeland digital editor at thomson reuters and author of "plutocrats." and by robert scheer editor at truth dig.com and author of "the great american stick up up:show reagan republicans and clinton democrats enriched wall street while mugging main street street." rapid plus expeditious equals major. >> romney seems to be pivoting so far that he's presenting himself as obama 2008. that's what we heard in the foreign policy debate. and what was striking for me today is how often he referred to positively to the obama of 2008, and how he tried to sort of seize the mantle that obama c
today from vice-president j biden hitting governor romney and republicans on taxes in a campaign event in wisconsin. >> you canno erase what you have already done. they voted to extend tax cuts for the wealthy giving $500 trillion tax cut so 120,000 families. lou: that's a lot of money. 500 trillion. you have to love the vice-president, his view on things and, his expression. for a little perspective, the national debt is 16 trillion. we'll just leave it there. my next guest says there is no case on economic grounds to raise taxes. joining me now, senior economic writer for the wall street journal, stephen moore, author of the new book, the truth about opportunity, taxes, and wealth in america. great to have you with us. >> great to be with you. can i say something? this is really the problem in washington. you know, and it's not just joe biden. these politicians can't tell the difference between a billion and a trillion. the the numbers are so big now, everybody's eyes glaze over. a trillion dollars, million illion. all lot of zeros. lou: and you know what, we, like you, cover these b
the president to 263. mitt romney, and the republicans believe, florida and virginia, the two southern states putting them in pretty good shape, getting them to 248. that brings us to the two most hotly contested, colorado and ohio, but look at this, if i move ohio over to romney, he is still short of the 270 magic number, could mean that colorado, a state we told you yesterday in the polling had it 48-48, means it could be the state keeping us up all night. but speaking of keeping us up all night, here, i give the midwestern states all to romney. wisconsin, iowa, ohio and florida, but go ahead and give virginia to the president. let me show you where this takes us. 269 for romney. 269 for the president. here, and i have no more electoral votes to push. this would mean we would have the constitution work, and this would also mean, brian, that the most likely outcome in this is the house would elect romney president, and the senate would elect biden vp. there are a lot of possible scenarios, this one, not so implausible. >> chuck, step away from the math, we have days to go, many different sce
in the buckeye state. ♪ >> actually, the note mitt romney hit was a heck of a lot worse than that. the republican normminee out of nowhere told a crowd of supporters some unexpected information about auto jobs in nearby toledo, ohio. saw a story today of one of the great manufacturers of the state, jeep, now owned by italians is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair. >>. moving all production to china. folks, this is a gigantic lie. earlier this week, chrysler's parent company announced that it's in talks to increase operations throughout the entire world. now as bloomberg news reported chrysler referred to adding jeep production sites rather than shifting output from north america to china. translation, chrysler is so flushed with cash they are looking to expand operations to other countries including the world's largest customer. today chrysler announced 1100 new jobs at its jeep assembly plant in detroit, michigan. but wait a minute, mitt romney he didn't say anything about that. you see mitt rom
and change. how can both republicans or people who are voting for mitt romney if they're independents say that things have changed too much. they "want their country back." but they still didn't get change. how can you have the argument both ways? >> that's easy, victor, that's easy. republicans never wanted president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did. >> let's talk about those independents. >> those are the ones right now who are the ones you're talking about. those are the ones most disappointed. >> let's talk about something that happened on your show. a caller called into your show and gave you a bit of a warning, right? >> he gave republicans a warning. the same thing i have been doing. if mitt romney wins this time around, i'm an embarrassed if republicans screw it up this time around, i don't know if we'll vote for them again. >> i'm going to give the republican party this warning, that i'm with you by default. but if you don't do something in the next four years, it's just going to flip right back to democrat. >> and, specifically, that warning is for what el
that are divergent in some of these polls. we look at the numbers. the republicans and. romney team expects to be behind an early vote and believe they can carry ohio on election day. >> the get out the vote effort, part of the ground game we spent time talking about historically. president obama also had an advantage in that category. he's got more field offices here in florida than governor romney, more field offices in ohio than the governor does. i continue to hear folks say that mitt romney, that his ground game is so much better than it was four years ago. how are we measuring that? >> first thing we've got to remember, and i make this screw-up, too, this is a different candidate than four years ago. this is not john mccain, this is mitt romney. when it comes to on the ground activities, that's the first fact to remember. if you look at poll after poll, republicans and conservatives are excited about their nominee, especially after his performance at the debates. that's the first step. second step is that some of the best veterans in our party at the rnc with rick wily, at the romney
%, and mitt romney does not break 23%. and you have republican pollsters saying that if mitt romney doesn't get at least 38%, something that his own campaign is saying, of the latino vote, there's no way that he can win. in 2010, people had harry reid on par with sharon engel going into election day and he ended up beating her by five to seven points, and why was that? because all of the pollsters were missing the latino support that harry reid had. and i think that that is absolutely going to be the case, especially in these southwestern states. i think you need to add at least four percentage points nationally, and in these states to president obama's numbers. i think it's going to be part of his firewall along with the women's vote. >> so amy, what should romney be focusing on? should he even reap out to latinos at this point with so little time? >> of course, he should be reaching out to all voters, and that's where he's foe cushion his message. i think it's interesting that you see that the president's campaign message is entirely negative. it's attacking his challenger. whereas mitt
the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but governor romney would like that lead among older, more reliable, more republican voters to be a little bit bigger than 52-46. that's one thing he needs to work on. this is significant. like in michigan, the auto bailout plays big in ohio and look at this. you might say the president's only getting 41% of white men, 46% of white women. that's actually a good number. if the president can keep above 40% among whites overall and above 40% among white men, it's pretty much game over in the electorate. this is a statistic we will watch as we get closer to election day. if the president is above 40 among whites, especially above 40 among white men, in most states he would be well on his path to victory. you siee this more and more in industrial states affected by the auto bailout, the president runs stronger among white men. if that poll were to hold up, can governor romney get to 270 without ohio and how much easier is it for the president to get to 270 with ohio? let's start with the president. he's at 237 righ
in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the age of 50, there's a big gap, 18 point lead for the president among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but governor romney would like that lead among older, more reliable, more republican voters to be a little bit bigger than 52-46. that's one thing he needs to work on. this is significant. like in michigan, the auto bailout plays big in ohio and look at this. you might say the president's only getting 41% of wh
be coming our way from delaware. >>> back to politics now. today republican presidential nominee mitt romney heads for florida to campaign with senator marco rubio. governor romney and vice presidential candidate paul ryan had a big rally in ohio, and today congressman ryan is on a bus tour across the state. nbc's ron mott is traveling in ohio with mr. ryan so with a good morning to you, ron. let's talk about all the stops on this bus tour today in ohio. how many do you have scheduled? >> hey there, alex. good saturday morning to you. i should have taken the pillow from the hotel to sit on because we're on a nine-stop bus tour over 400 miles today and tomorrow with congressman paul ryan. they're trying to close the deal here in ohio. we expect to see president obama and governor romney hit these battle grounds hard over the next ten days. ohio is perhaps the most important of them, especially for governor romney. because no republican candidate has won the white house, alex, without winning this state. last night as you mentioned, he and paul ryan held a huge rally in north canton last night
that candidate romney is willing to drop that ad. >> i think it's not representative of the republican party. how i'm going to finish answering the question is that what's happening is democrats and president obama are doing a trumped-up war on women. they started it up in majority of. march. women are smarter than that. romney is tied 47% with oba outhe vot this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been effected with the jobless rate under president obama and that's what it's about. it's not working. >> i don't think it's funniy at all. it's not funny because we are not going to fall for it in the end. women were told that the reason why republicans wanted to get into congress is because they wanted to do something about the debt. they got in there and immediately attacked the panon parenthood. they passed 26 laws in hundreds of states. they have here a woman who is attacked, called a slut for wanting access to contraception and a candidate that just said, i wouldn't phrased it that way. exactly how would he have phrased it? >> that's a false narrative. >> i don't wa
on gay rights. >> the expectation was that romney would do very well. >> mitt romney, the republican candidate... >> i ran into someone who was not so friendly to us who said, "did you come to see your guy destroyed?" i paced in the back of faneuil hall during the entire debate. >> good evening and welcome. >> narrator: romney directly confronted edward kennedy. >> senator kennedy, my impression has been that you have followed a campaign, as soon as the primary was over, of trying to divert the voters' attention from the issues at hand, and instead making personal attacks on me which are unfounded, unfair and sleazy. >> narrator: kennedy had unleashed negative tv ads. >> romney. it's not just what he did to his workers and business that's the problem. it's what he might do to us in the senate. >> kennedy was a master politician and what he did was he used a series of filmed ads to its maximal effect. >> mitt romney says he helped create 10,000 jobs. the former workers at scm in marion, indiana, say something else. >> i'd like to say to the people of massachusetts, if you think it can
and presidential candidate george mcgovern. now republican presidential candidate mitt romney in ames iowa for a speech on the economy on his economic plan. according to the latest polling average, president obama holds a % lead in this state. this is about 35 minutes. ♪ >> hello everybody, how are you doing? you live in iowa and you live in a battleground state. let me say that again because i don't think i've said that in all the years i've been in politics. we're a battleground state this year and that makes it very important. and i'm glad i have the opportunity to welcome the next president of the united states. and i know it's cool and you feel the chill but also you feel the momentum of romney being the next president of the united states. [applause] now you folks all know people who voted four years ago for president obama. you know that he promised partisanship and to reduce the deficit by half, that he was going to give us accountable government, that he was going to reduce your health insurance by $2500. today we have would have 5 and 6% unemployment instead of 8 and 9%. that w
of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rubbed them out. i think also mitt romney is more the kind of candidate that people in affront -- affluent suburbs cotton to. he is from the suburbs himself. he won the republican nomination in affluent areas and shown himself to be more articulate than president obama, the supposedly great orator. people in affluent suburbs like people who are articulate, who use words good, as i like to put it, and that is an advantage that mitt romney has and that he demonstrated to great effect there, and i think -- i wrote earlier in the washington examiner that romney was a kin dread spirit to many aflute people. politically awkward on some occasion. he is able to make a sharp point but is polite and is conservative on the cultural issues. has an attitude that reminds me of the inscription on the tombstone of an english woman which noted she was religious without enthusiasm. >> well, what's this democratic argument you're hearing now, that says, okay, all of that might be true, but republicans have no chance at michigan and pennsylvania
at michigan and pennsylvania anyway. and, look, in ohio, which the republicans have to win, romney has to win, where barack obama is still leading, still leading wisconsin and iowa and nevada. that is his fire wall, and unless romney can break through that he won't win the election. >> his fire wall used to include florida and virginia and they're not talking about that as fire wall states anymore with romney ahead in florida. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a w
like this, the president's getting the democrats, romney's getting a republicans, the candidate who wins among independents is likely to win. that is critical the watch in the last week to election day. there's also an age divide. it's important as well. you see a huge leap for the president. 56-38, among voters under 50. that's an important part of his constituency. republicans need the older voters by 2i-46. governor romney would like that to be bigger. there's also a racial and gender gap, if you will. i want to put it this way. the president is, if he is above 40% in the white vote, he tends to win a state because of the demographics like ohio. you see them here, 41% of white men, 46% of white women. if the president can hold those numbers, it's most likely he would hang on to ohio. >> from all the math i've seen out there, it's incredibly difficult for mitt romney to get to the white house without ohio. what is his game plan if he doesn't win the buckeye state? >> you know the history. no republican has ever won the the white house without winning the state of ohio. if we start
@ktvu.com. you will find more there including fan slide shows. >>> now, election 2012 coverage. republican presidential nominee, romney, spent the day in iowa talking about the economy. there he told supporters that president barack obama has only quote made the problem worse. >> the president's campaign slogan is this, forward. but for 23 million americans trying to find a job these past four years feel more like backward. >>> for the democrats, joe biden hit the trail today while president barack obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >> it is always america is in decline. i got news for them. romney and ryan are -- america is not in decline you are in denial. >> biden at a rally in keep oshaa, wisconsin. the polls have the -- kenosha, wisconsin. the polls have barack obama ahead in wisconsin. >>> bay area community college is showing students how they will be effected if they fail to pass an ordinance. the classes highlighted in red will only be offered if proposition 30 passes next month. if it fails the district says it will have to cut about 100 classes at the classes in livermore i
of the romney campaign there in fort worth? >> i see that the republicans handled the -- handled their candidate, mitt romney, and i see that they're orchestrated, as far as all of his surrogate that have negative comments and responses by the republican party. >> we're going to leave it there. molly ball of the atlantic, go ahead. >> well, i don't think we should read too much into the different form that these campaigns have taken. part of the reason that the republican national committee is handling the ground game for romney is that the republican primary took quite a while to decide, and so they were able to start building this organization back in march, before romney was the nominee and try to catch up with the obama campaign that's been building this organization for six years. i do think the republicans are at a disadvantage because they've had less time, but if they had waited until romney sewed up the nomination around late april, or even until the convention when he official my received the nomination, they would have been at a much more severe disadvantage. these organizations take
may win a district. but it's a-- s so it's a republican state going in. the irony is for mitt romney, is that john kasich who you saw in the piece, the governor, is extolling all these good news that we just heard. and the romney people don't want to hear that because part of their message is we've got the economic key. and it can't have already happened in ohio under barack obama's watch. >> woodruff: let's broaden it out. you said that you were talking to david about the difference between ohio and the rest of the country, what does it look like across the country right know in the campaign? >> you know, i have read so many very confident people over the last 24 hourx totally confident that obama is going to win or that romney is going to win. i don't think we can know. i think something will happen the last three days, there will be a shift and something will happen. i do think there has been a contrast in how the campaigns are operatng in the last couplef weeks. and romney's trying to go big with big change. paul ryan gave i think quite a good speech on social mobility and povert
, crucial questions. would mitt romney buff the republican party at any time if he were elected president. and secondly, does barack obama have sort of a second wind, a second burst of policy creative. >> woodruff: he did put out this 20 page. >> but that was a rehash statement of his. if you go to what he wrote in 2007, i bet most of those things are in that 2007 book. and so they're fine. you know, community colleges, more math and science teachers and all that stuff. but it's not exactly a huge agenda. so you are a voter. you are trying to imagine what is the next four years going to look like. i think it's very hard because the big questions have been unasked. >> woodruff: well, i guess only ten days to go after this. i was going to ask you about the ground game and all kinds of other things. but this has been better than that, better than the ground game. >> it's important for us to vent emotionally. >> woodruff: mark shields, david brooks, thank you both. there is more politics talk with mark, david, and hari on the "doubleheader", recorded in our newsroom. that will be posted at th
is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a
than any recent republican candidates, including george bush. what romney is talking about here is the free-market. and as you say, pre-existing conditions are popular, like big bird. john: if everybody has to cover pre-isting conditions. >> let me finish. no one said everyone has to cover. the answer is the free market. it was popular. we will be provided on the free market. there are insurance products we can't even think of, including buying insurance for your unborn children. you know what their pre-existing conditions are. that fact that people talk about pre-existing conditions shows that there's a market for that. i think the free market will respond to that. instead of the problem with health care, and the reaso romney care was a libertarian solution for a governor to provide because the governor cannot repeal of thehe federal government's tough is right now you already have government intervention. government pays for nearly 50 percent of all health care. it is already 50 percent socialist. romney is going to roll it back, plus a free market magic. everything you want c
